The revolution, is slowly but steadily
spreading westward, and to those jurisdic
tions west of the Cinco Villas, which . are
now known as the revolutionary . districta,
are added Cardenas, Colon, Guinness and
Matanzas, where quite frequent' incendia.-
risms have occurred. The alarm created
among . the ever faithful legions by these sur
prises is great, and a spontaneous cry goes up
to save the sugar district. The Cubans areju
bilant over the matter, and consider the days
of Spanish posiession as numbered, while the
_pretend to be equally confident, and
busy themselves in predicting the speedy sup

The Paris correspondence of the New York
Times says ,
Owing to some misunderstanding on the part
of the local authorities in• some parts of the ,
country, the prisoners• entitled to the benefit
of the amnesty were not liberated for several
days after its punlicatiou. •The delay, as you
may imagine, gave rise to loud coMplaints on
the part of the farniliescitthe persons detained,
who naturally hemline alarmed in regard
to the causes. .Their apprehensions have''
been set at rest by 'orders tele
graphed by the Government as soon - as
the facts became known. All the political

eagerness. to quit their prisons. On its•-being !

wholuid sent him there without a shadow of
right, had as:little right to:liberate him. The
Governor expostulated"' with him, but, ink

matter,on the idea- that .the morning, would' .
bring wiser Counsels. 'When '"morning:: came, .•
however; the sturdy - Republican 'declared his;

them most cruelly. They have 'also beeutalc=

of a notice which was thrust under the cabin
door of one of the negroes. .- The note , is in
neat and .undisguised hand-writing:

Colintel Stokes' and Colonel Broth)low's
Interviews with the President.:
"hie Washington correspondent of' the N.
bays •
Among the callers at the Executive Mansion
toWlay. Were Colonel StOkes'; yepresent
ing,! the Capulets,,' and Colonel John.
BroWnlOw, representing the , Montagues,
of :Abe' ;radical party Art Tennessee: Col.
Biewnlow,Who s a son of Senator Brownie*,
wits' 'accompanied • by Judge d": J. Noah, late
Supervisor of Internal Revenue in Tennessee.
The partieS reached the White House about
the same time and their cards were
sent • into the President simultane
onsly, After a brief delay Stokes, Brownlow
and .Noah were ushered into the Executive
presence. This was anawkward predicament
for all conceined.. Each of the, partiewcame
Ito relate. .his story of the late political cam
_paign iixiTennessee, and.ef the 'present
tion of afthirs in that State, with the view, if
'possible, of getting the, President's sympathy.
'When they entered the Presidentwas engaged
in eonstiltation with Secretary Rawlins. He
imniediately recognized • the belligerents,
however, and beckoned them to take a seat
together on a sofa Neither, of them felt in
-64441 to make such an approach 't . e.pabific
don. Stokes sat down in. one part of the
room and Brownlow and Noah in another.
As soon as the President was through with
his, War Minister, Stokes approached him,
and after a few words of private conversation
'withdrew, leaving the field in the undisputed
possession of Brownlow and his friend Noah:
Brownlow at once opened the conversation
137 referring 'to the" rumors — abont
athe President's interference in. Tennessee
with regard to.„the election. The Presi
dent, . said .he.had no more to do with the
local affairs of Tennessee than he had with
those of New York, and did not propose to in
terfere. He recognized Governor Seiner as a
Republican, and also. the Republicans who
voted for. Senter, and he did not propose to re
move any man otherwise competent, merely
because fie.s.upported"Senter. Colonel Brown
low referred to a speech made by Stokes in the
canvass, wherein, he (Stokes) had said that the
President Was :about to write a letter en
dorsing Stokes and condemning Senter. The
President replied that he had written no such
letter, and had ;not authorized any person
to make such a statement. He met Governor
Senter, he said z in New York, and had a very
pleasant interview with him. The 13rownlow
party retired with the impression that the
President did not propose to make a sweep o
what Stokes mils - the " Senter renegades.' It
appears that Stokes. 's private talk with
the President during_ has trying • dilemma
was for the purpose of arranging for
a separate interview. This was granted,
and late in the afternoon Stokes made
his appearance at the White House for, the
purpose of 'telling his version of the story. He
occupied the President until it was time for
the latter to start for the train. Stokes re
counted all his grievances, repeated the story
of the campaign as he had told it to your cor
respondent about a IVeek ago, and assured the
President that he was not-here for the pur
pose of having officials renioved, but simply to
secure protection to the Union men of Ten
! __nessee. The_President_liStened_ patiently—to
all Stokes had to say, and then expressed the
opinion that'Union men would be protected

At• 4.16 , o'clock 'yesterday - afternoon the
lumber yard of Russell Johnson; at the corner
of•Broome and Tompkins streets, was fired by,
two children. who had been carelessly playing
with matches. The yard extended from

their,, way through the lumber unchecked.
Within a few moments from the time of the
children's bonfire a great portion of the yard
was in flames and the Tompkins street house
had been ignited. A little later and the lire
reached the roof of No :SJO Grand street, and
thence spread to Nos. 508, 598/, GOO and 802, all
old two-story., frames, except the last, which
was three stones high and in tolerable con
dition. The Tompkins'street house was almost
entirely destroyed, and of the' Grand
street houses the roof of Vo. 15.. was buined,
and the others Were so ndarly destroyed as to
be uninhabitable. After a vigorous contest of
more than .two hours, the Firs•DephrtMent
got the flames under control and finally ex
tinguished them.
The houses injured `and destroyed were of
comparatively little value, and the occupants
succeeded in saving so much of the' contents
as to greatly lessen the losses.

-- 77A , 7,CorreSpendent writes in reference, to ; the
habits of operatic: singers referred to in the
Pall Mall Gazette, that- from his long acquaint,
mice with artists, native and foreign; he can
testify as to, their moderation, both in eating
and drinking,•whilst preparing for, or in the
performance of, their duties. They dine early
on the day they sing; they take as little as
possible, and ',they receive very ferar visitors
before they have to sing. " But then the
suppers are- • ''something to see-their
appetites - are after the evening's
excitement.- As . a general rule they
. take little or nothing between the aets,but some
of them reqpire stringent stimulants. if not
strong ones. • Malibran never sang better than
